Notice how the press only reports on the number of people murdered in Oakland, but never how many people were actually shot? I bet that number would be staggering. Why does the media refuse to report this?

My bet us around 300 shot annually in Oakland with a hundred or so dying. You never hear the media reporting on how many shooting and stabbing victims who manage to survive. The media really had gone down hill in their reporting skills unless one of them gets murdered, then the do some reasonable investigative journalism. Too bad they don't do it EVERY DAY!

My guess would be that because Oakland has people shot most everyday, people would get tired of reading the same old thing day after day. Heck.... People are even getting numb to all the murders....

Sad stuff
